Sherwood forest was one of the first big parks I went to on moving to England the first time, so these pictures are a little old! Nothings changed though as we’ve been back since. When I learned we lived fairly close to Nottingham, I had jokingly said “Oh so we should go to Sherwood Forest!” Low and behold, there is an actual Sherwood Forest, so off we went.Once you’ve paid for parking there’s no additional charge for the exhibition and walking around the park. The whole time we were walking around the forest I was like an excited five year old on the hunt for Robin Hood, which was met with less excitement from Adam and our friend James who thought I was a little nuts.This tree is called the Great Oak, and is supposedly where Robin Hood took shelterAfter all the boys jeering I FOUND ROBIN HOOD! Ok, so I’m aware it’s not THE Robin Hood, (he would be super old) but I was excited nonetheless. Now for the record, if you are expecting your own spotting, I don’t think there’s always one about, as we went again and didn’t see him. Though the forest is a big place after all and he may just be hiding. There’s a small town a short walk outside of the forest with cafes and shops full of Robin Hood references, as above. The church below is known as the church that Robin Hood and Maid Marian got married in.Why sure Robin, I’ll mary you!
